When did you start blogging?
I started blogging 8 years ago when I was 13, I can’t even remember what my first URL was! However I start blogging consistently on jodiemelissa.com in May 2015.
Mainly because I loved reading other blogs and watching Youtube videos, I really wanted to join in and share my own opinions with others like I would with my friends. I’ve always been someone that loves to be busy and feeling productive, and blogging definitely satisfies that!
What’s your tips on taking good blog pics?
Once I understood the importance of lighting I started to love photography and have more confidence with my own blog photography. Shooting during a bright time of day really makes a difference to the overall look of a photograph. Another tip is remembering the importance of composition and angles, it can completely change the look and feel of an image.
As you can imagine my wishlist is never ending. I have my eye on the Dior Reviver lip balms, they look beautiful and it’s something I would make use of everyday.
The Maybelline Dream Matte Mousse springs to mind but I feel like it was a probably a Natural Collection lipstick from Boots. I remember always buying makeup from that brand when I was younger because everything was under £2!
I think I take inspiration from lots of different places and people, I engage with the community so much that it’s hard not to get inspired by others. I love anything with a Parisian/ trendy vibe and in terms of other bloggers it has to be KateLaVie and Sophiesmakeup.
My top tips are to be consistent, try not to compare yourself to others and just be yourself, sounds cliche but there is only one you, do your thing and there are bound to be people interested.
